You provide an immediate and powerful impact through the Wheaton Fund
Wheaton Fund gifts come in all sizes, from a few dollars to more than $100,000. Every donor positions us to empower our students to be tomorrow’s leaders. Your participation enhances the value of Wheaton’s distinctive liberal arts education.
Invest Today. Inspire Tomorrow.
When making a gift to the Wheaton Fund you have the ability to designate your gift, if you choose, to one of the following giving priorities:
Area of Greatest Need
Through your support, you will help fund First-Year Seminars which offer students the opportunity to learn in small classes allowing diverse perspectives and experience to be interwoven across disciplines.
Arts & Cultural Learning
Creative expression is a hallmark of a liberal arts education. Through the Wheaton Fund you can support student-curated exhibition and the senior studio art major’s exhibition, as well as help maintain Wheaton College’s permanent art collection.
As a Wheaton Fund donor, you can support intramural and club sports as well as help retain top-rated coaches. You help purchase equipment and provide transportation for the college’s 21 men’s and women’s teams.
The Wheaton Edge guarantee, which formalized the college’s long-standing commitment to providing an outstanding liberal arts education that includes real-world experience, is made possible in large part by Wheaton Fund donors.
You help to prepare students to address critical issues and take action on the solutions they develop by helping to provide an immersive face-to-face residential experience.
Science, Technology & Library Resources
With your support, faculty and students are provided with smart classrooms, campus-wide Wi-Fi, library collections and access to digital subscriptions and information resources. You can provide tools, materials and spaces for students to gather, explore, innovate and create.
Strengthening Ties to Community
You can help broaden the impact of students, faculty and staff who work in soup kitchens or participate in youth mentoring and tutoring. Or who have traveled to Ghana, Rwanda and beyond to contribute positively to local and global communities.
You may support the college’s commitment to enhancing the campus environment and infrastructure to meet students’ needs and to support the innovative and high-quality curricular and co-curricular programs that shape their experiences.
